Check out more information in the Foundation’s statement below:
Many of you have received our year end appeal and some of you may not have. If you have not already donated, please consider using this opportunity to make a year end, 100% tax deductible donation.
Your direct contributions along with successful events sponsored by the Foundation this year, such as the Performing Arts Gala, the Annual Golf Tournament and Dinner of Champions, have allowed us to provide over $159,000 in direct support of the school this past year; specifically, Visual & Performing Arts, Video Production, Academic Excellence, the Library as well as Athletics. The vast majority of Ballard students are directly impacted by this funding – a priority of the Foundation’s mission.
We are also encouraged by the investment we are making in the GAINS (Graduation Assistance Impacting the Needs of Students) Program which continues to work with students who have been identified as ‘at risk’ for delayed graduation or dropping out of school due to grades, absenteeism or disciplinary issues. Keeping students enrolled and increasing the overall graduation rate is a key goal at Ballard.
We continue to strive to make BHS a school where every student is served regardless of need. We encourage you to consider a generous gift to the Ballard High School Foundation as we bid goodbye to 2014.
All the best to you and yours from all of us.
